Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said on Tuesday that his election fraud unit is investigating an “organized election fraud scheme” exposed by investigative journalism nonprofit Project Veritas in undercover footage that appears to show a woman challenging and changing voters’ ballots. In an 18-minute exposé published Tuesday, an undercover journalist tails a woman in San Antonio. In the footage, the woman, described by the nonprofit as a “ballot chaser,” can be seen attempting to switch an individual’s vote toward the Democratic Party in Texas. She said in the video she was a “consultant” for GOP congressional candidate Mauro Garza, but that she was attempting to persuade voters to cast ballots for Garza and then vote Democrat the rest of the ballot. “If I go to prison, I do not look cute in stripes … I will hate you forever,” the woman said. “You know on here you chose a Rep, not a Dem right?” “Let me just show you how to do that,” she continued. “This is what you call flipping people!” she later explained. “You’re not supposed to do that! I’ll take 20 ballots here, 30 ballots there.” She also said that she was bringing “at least 7,000 ballots to the polls” in the San Antonio area. The Epoch Times has not independently verified the woman’s identity, however, according to Project Veritas, she identified herself as Raquel Rodriguez. She also penned a response letter to the organization, describing herself as a “dedicated community member committed to help the underserved people of San Antonio,” and the founder of San Antonio’s “Love Thy Neighbor voting squad,” which describes itself on its Facebook page as independent and “not affiliated or committed to a political party.” “We register, educate, and explain voting rights,” it states. Project Veritas said its undercover reporter paid her $500 to follow her and observe her at work. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in Washington on May 20, 2019. (Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) “What’s shown in the video is shocking and should alarm all Texans who care about election integrity,” Paxton said in a statement. “We are aggressively investigating the serious allegations and potential crimes that Project Veritas’s documentary audio and video recordings shed light on today.” He added, “My office is fiercely committed to ensuring that the voting process is secure and fair in all Texas elections—a process that this video unfortunately casts a shadow of doubt on. “Election integrity has been a top priority of mine since I first took office in 2015. Anyone who attempts to defraud the people of Texas, deprive them of their vote, or undermine the integrity of elections will be brought to justice and penalized to the fullest extent of the law.” A poll worker stamps a voter’s ballot before dropping it into a secure box at a ballot drop off location in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 13, 2020.

State law only allows family members to “harvest” or drop off ballots, said Project Veritas attorney Jered Ede. Garza said in a statement on Facebook that a “former Mauro Garza campaign volunteer was recorded alleging voter fraud in our local elections.” “I do not endorse or support any wrongdoing or voter fraud,” the statement said. “If any member of my campaign team, paid or volunteer, engages in or gives the perception of any negligent behavior or threatens the integrity of voter registration or engages in voter fraud, they will be immediately fired and turned over to the county elections office and law enforcement.”
We're one week away from the election. Predictions are flying about, fact-checks that are less about facts and more about checking what you believe, bounce around this here internet about like ping pong balls. Meanwhile, voter fraud seems to be quite real. Project Veritas headed to what conservatives declare as a conservative bastion, Texas, and captured some disturbing undercover footage
An undercover video from James O’Keefe and the investigative journalists at Project Veritas shows a Google employee boasting that the company “censor out news from your search engine,” and stop “right-wing parties from advertising.” The Google employee — marketing technical account manager Adriano Amaduzzi — also revealed that he has chosen to ignore a request for a pro-Brexit advertisement on the
Project Veritas, an undercover journalism nonprofit, recorded a Google staffer speaking about the ability of the big tech giant to boost or censor political views. Adriano Amaduzzi, a technical account manager at Google Marketing, was recorded saying that Google can “offer free credits, free advertising credits to Democratic parties to advertise” and “can censor out news” from its search engine to suppress views it doesn’t want. “I don’t know how much you do that,” he added, presumably referring to Google. Responding to a follow-up question, Amaduzzi acknowledged that Google’s Trust and Safety team can make decisions surrounding the matter. He did not know that he was speaking to Project Veritas, which released hidden camera recordings of his comments late Tuesday. In another segment, Amaduzzi can be heard saying that nearly “80 percent of videos uploaded have been blocked in total that contain hate speech.” He later said that hate speech gets reviewed by people working in Google’s Trust and Safety team, and that it has the potential to get involved in the 2020 election by “stopping right-wing parties from advertising” and “reducing the exposure of their ads.” He did not dispute an off-camera comment that “the majority of Trust and Safety is extremely left.” The founder and CEO of Project Veritas James O’Keefe said in a statement that Amaduzzi’s comments are consistent with other investigations by the organization into how social media giants manipulate speech and content. “Recently we’ve seen censorship of free thought and stories from the big tech giants. Many believe this kind of editorial suppression will affect the upcoming election,” O’Keefe said. “But it seems the biggest tech giant of them all—Google—may have other ways to impact the election—this time coming from their ad sales division overseas.” James O’Keefe, founder and president of the non-profit Project Veritas, in New York on Oct. 31, 2017. (Benjamin Chasteen/The Epoch Times) Project Veritas also recorded Amaduzzi saying that he had ignored a request by someone from the Conservative Party in the UK for advertising to promote Brexit. “Funnily enough about Brexit, I had a guy LinkedIn me—I don’t know why—contacting me, saying, ‘Hi I’m the head of digital infrastructure of the Conservative Party of the United Kingdom. We would like to do advertising with Google. Could you help me with that?'” he said. “I was like, I didn’t answer. You’re telling an Italian that lives in London that you want to advertise Brexit,” he added. “It’s like, seriously … promoting the blocking the free movement of European people. And you’re asking a European guy to help you do that … I didn’t help him.” The latest report followed an earlier piece the investigative group released on Monday, in which Google Cloud Technical Program Manager Ritesh Lakhkar was recorded alleging that Google search is “skewed by the owners and the drivers of the algorithm,” and that the company is allegedly “playing selective God” over information Americans receive. Google did not immediately respond to The Epoch Times’s request for comment. Read More Trump Administration, 11 States, Launch Antitrust Lawsuit Against Search Behemoth Google The news come amid an antitrust lawsuit (pdf) filed on Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Justice and 11 states against Google. The suit accuses Google of anticompetitive and exclusionary practices that make it an unlawful monopoly in both search and advertising. Google reacted to the suit, calling it “deeply flawed.” “People use Google because they choose to, not because they’re forced to, or because they can’t find alternatives,” Kent Walker, senior vice president of global affairs for the company, said in a statement. “Our engineers work to offer the best search engine possible, constantly improving and fine-tuning it. We think that’s why a wide cross-section of Americans value and often love our free products.” “This lawsuit would do nothing to help consumers. To the contrary, it would artificially prop up lower-quality search alternatives, raise phone prices, and make it harder for people to get the search services they want to use,” he added. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), a high-profile Silicon Valley critic, described the legal action as “the most important antitrust case in a generation.” “Google and its fellow big tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” Hawley said in a statement.

A Colorado congressional candidate recently raised money with a man who was caught on camera saying he wanted to kill Trump supporters. Ike McCorkle, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R), held an online fundraiser on September 17 titled, “Be Aware, Climate Care.” The event featured former speaker of the Colorado House Andrew Romanoff, climate activist Diana Bray, and
If you're a Louder with Crowder fan, you no doubt have heard about Big Tech "censorship." Or, at the very least, the way companies like YouTube and Facebook manipulates information and is believed to do so for political reasons. "Allegedly." Not a lot of MAGA hats in Silicon Valley, basically. Ironically enough, I originally had a typo and the previous
Project Veritas is issuing their latest video expose and they are placing a huge spotlight on the Democrats’ ballot harvesting caper. This scheme involves a number of power players. Representative Ilhan Omar’s associates are said to have involvement, as well as various political allies. The footage, which was captured undercover, was released on Sunday. Project Veritas’ investigative journalists have made a major discovery. Ali Isse Gainey, Ilhan Omar’s campaign manager, is said to be playing a key role in the Democratic vote theft scheme. Liban Mohamed is depicted in the footage, claiming that the ballots were only being collected to help his brother win a political race. The ballots were collected for a special election that took place on August 11. The vacant Ward 6 city council seat needed to be filled but this election also happened to take place on the same day of Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat primary. The dots are being connected and the scheme is finally being exposed. The numbers do not lie. The story is now being shared with a much wider audience on Twitter. You can head to the James O’Keefe Twitter feed to find out more. He is making sure that the word is spread far and wide. “BREAKING: @IlhanOmar connected cash-for-ballots harvesting scheme EXPOSED “Money is the king in everything”; harvester boasts harvesting HUNDREDS of 2020 absentee ballots ILLEGALLY! “Numbers do not lie…these here are all absentee ballots…my car is full…” reads the tweet. If this information is frightening to take in, imagine how everyone else feels. We have waited four long years ago to cast our ballots once more and now we are being told that our votes may not even count. It’s enough to make anyone want to stay home but we cannot feed into these mindsets. It’s exactly what the Democrats are hoping for. They want conservatives to feel as though they are wasting their time by heading to the polls. The Snapchat videos that were posted by Liban on his own account are even more damning than you would think. “Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” says Mohammed in the clip. The videos were posted on his profile on July 1 and July 2. “Money is everything. Money is the king in this world. If you got no money, you should not be here period. You know what I am saying,” Mohammed continued. We can’t argue with that but this mentality has an odd way of manifesting itself in certain people. As for O’Keefe? He issued a statement when the video was released, letting everyone know where he stands. “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk,” his statement reads. “We are showing Americans what is really going on in one of our great cities—but, it’s not me saying—we have the operators on tape saying it all themselves,” O’Keefe continued. Omar Jamal also wants the scheme exposed. He’s a political insider who has spent a great deal of time among the community’s Somali population.“It’s an open secret,” he said. “she [Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.” “I’m afraid it’s already too big to stop, you know, maybe it’s too late. Maybe it’s already too big to stop,” Jamal added. “There’s a lot of people invested in this, you know, and they don’t care how they did it: ‘We win,’ and that’s it.” Hennepin County Attorney Jeff Wojciechowski has been in contact with Project Veritas. He will be investigating the matter as soon as possible. The Democrats better start cleaning up their act now before they find themselves in any more trouble.

Following the second in a series of videos from Project Veritas exposing ballot harvesting and voter fraud in Minneapolis, the crew was able to collect strong circumstantial evidence that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her campaign were directly involved in the scheme. She must be investigated by the Department of Justice immediately. In the latest episode of NOQ Report, I described four reasons why this must be the case. Faith in justice There has never been a time in my memory when faith in justice prevailing in America was ever lower. Millions of Americans seem to no longer believe the justice system does its job properly. That’s not even counting the leftist morons who believe police are too harsh. I’m talking specifically about the people who have seen Hillary Clinton get away with everything, Jeffrey Epstein never receiving the sentencing or questions he deserved, or those involved with Obamagate on the verge of being arrested. We need this. We need the Congresswoman to be investigated at the very least and if she’s found to have been involved, she needs to be charged. Dissuade other ballot harvesting This close to the election, there seems to be rampant ballot harvesting and non-stop voter fraud popping up everywhere. As I noted yesterday, there have been three known cases just in the last few days. How much of it is happening that we don’t know about? By going after those involved in this crime, it sends a message to not only others involved in voter fraud but also those who may be willing to otherwise take the payoff in exchange for their votes. Find terrorists So many have pointed to Omar as being connected to terrorist organizations. I have never talked much about it, not because I don’t believe it’s true but because there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue. Now, there is. Because she deserves it She rivals the Clintons in her ability to face scrutiny without facing criminal prosecution. From marrying her brother to campaign finance indiscretions, she has skated the law multiple times in her short political career. This time, she cannot be allowed to skate. America needs to see the good guys win some of these battles. Investigating Ilhan Omar will send a very clear message that those who want to destroy America and fraudulently influence the vote are not above the law. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast.
